It's been a complete pleasure working with all of you these last 2 months. The -Ógs were a lot of fun. But now it's time for me to look back and confer with my Irish Scholar friends to clean some of them up. For me as a poor beginner student, it was an awesome undertaking.
I thank all you who helped me and encouraged me by your Email. My advice to all beginning students is to learn your -Ógs. They are the best and simplest vocabulary builders in the language. And it was just by luck that I came upon the idea.
